Holiday Fund

It’s already time to start thinking about the holidays! Every year during the holiday season, the Manoa PTO sponsors the Holiday Fund. The funds raised from this drive are used to purchase something for the school that benefits all the grades. The item is usually nominated by the teachers and given in their name. This year the teachers and Mr. Hammond have requested the money collected go towards IPads for the students. At this time each class has access to approximately three IPads. Our goal is to double that!

In the past, parents have elected to donate to the Holiday Fund instead of purchasing individual teacher gifts. Manoa PTO is a non-profit organization under IRS Code section 501(c) (3) and is recognized as a Public Charity under section 509 (a) (2). Your donation may be tax deductible and/or eligible for your employer’s matching contribution program.

If you would like to be a part of this year’s Holiday Fund, submit your donation in an envelope marked “Holiday Fund – Manoa PTO”. Please include your family’s name on the envelope. A poster will be presented to Mr. Hammond and hung in the school office with the names of the families who participated in the fund.
